Installing your Bitdefender product

For a better viewing experience, please change the video settings.

Bitdefender installation is straight forward  (only 3 steps and it’s on your computer)
You can install Bitdefender from the Bitdefender installation disc or using a web installer downloaded on your computer from the Bitdefender website or from other authorized websites (for example, the website of a Bitdefender partner or an online shop). You can download the installation file from the Bitdefender website at the following address: http://www.bitdefender.com/Downloads/.
If your purchase covers more than one computer (for example, you purchased Bitdefender Total Security 2013 for 3 PCs), repeat the installation process and register your product with the license key on every computer.
 
Validating the installation
 
Bitdefender will first check your system to validate the installation.
If your system does not meet the minimum requirements for installing Bitdefender, you will be informed of the areas that need improvement before you can proceed.
If an incompatible antivirus program or an older version of Bitdefender is detected, you will be prompted to remove it from your system. Please follow the directions to remove the software from your system, thus avoiding problems occurring later on. You may need to reboot your computer to complete the removal of detected antivirus programs.
 
Step 1 - Welcome
The welcome screen lets you choose what type of installation you want to perform.
For a completely hassle-free installation experience, just click the Install button. Bitdefender will be installed in the default location with default settings.
Note: If you wish to configure the installation settings, select I want to customize my installation and then click Install to move on to the next step.
 
Step 2 - Installation in progress
Wait for the installation to complete. Detailed information about the progress is displayed. Critical areas on your system are scanned for viruses, the latest versions of the application files are downloaded and installed, and the Bitdefender services are started. This step can take a couple of minutes.
 
Step 3 - Installation completed
A summary of the installation is displayed. If any active malware was detected and removed during the installation, a system reboot may be required. You can either close the window, or continue with the initial setup of your software by clicking Get started.
 
 
How to register your product 
This step appears only if you have selected Get Started during the previous step.
